Today we present another entry for Round 18 of the SurvivalBlog non-fiction writing contest. The contest prizes include:
First Prize: The writer of the best contributed article in the next 60 days will be awarded two transferable Front Sight “Gray” Four Day Training Course Certificates. This is an up to $4,000 value!
Second Prize: A three day course certificate from OnPoint Tactical. This certificate will be for the prize winner’s choice of three-day civilian courses.
Third Prize: A copy of my “Rawles Gets You Ready” preparedness course, from Arbogast Publishing
Round 18 ends on September 30th, so get busy writing and e-mail us your entries. Remember that articles that relate practical “how to” skills for survival will have an advantage in the judging.
The author spent his time in the Army working in Long Range Reconnaissance and Surveillance (LRRS) and 11B scout units. He recently returned from a tour in Iraq. This article is abased upon his hands-on experience, rather than doctrine and manuals.
